I’ve been chipping away at a long term project exploring death/loss and the internet. From web-connected spirits boards to found-sound compositions using donated archives of people’s home recordings.
As part of this I created a set of three tiny games (so far) which touch on the ideas of grief and memory within digital spaces. Each one plays with a different aspect of, or way of processing, loss. In addition to the themes tying the games together, the musical score has been written as an overarching piece that threads together all three interactions.
All three are free to play online.
Cemetery Walk is the first in the series, and serves as a good introduction to the set.
Train is the second game. Taking place in a similarly constructed world, though a different, less immediate setting.
The third game serves as a sort of conclusion and a reflection of the first two. Tamagotchi Seance gives you an opportunity to talk to your long lost digital pet.
